The theater is full, the lights are off, and the projector is spotlighting the stage. Everybody wants to see the play about the life of the leading character – with all its drama and comedy, plot twists and cliffhangers, and certainly the little secrets of the guy whose name has been printed in big letters on the billboard. Fedor Holz, the CrownUpGuy. The high roller who has made a fortune playing poker, and who is also known as a brilliant, open-minded and creative person.
Such people have always been in the spotlight of the attention of the general public – purely because they themselves are actually the show! But will the spectators see that much? Is their curiosity going to be satisfied, in the end?

Fedor Holz has already retired, for he has already declared that there will be no more of the poker grind. OK, so of course he needs his private time – something he has probably missed from all the time he’s spent crisscrossing the world to take part in live poker tournaments, one after another. But what exactly is he going to spend his private time doing?
Weighing the options a young and healthy millionaire has is generally a thankless task – because you never really know what he’s going to do next! Especially if we’re talking about CrownUpGuy, a genuine poker genius who is in many ways, an unpredictable figure in a poker world. Not many people are going to be able to figure out his hand, his outs and his plans for the river.
Private time is exactly the kind of precious and non-renewable resource Fedor Holz must have learned to place a high value upon, and very early in his life. For many years, he did not have enough of it; and one reliable indicator of this is the fact he did not even have enough time to sleep. But now the situation has apparently changed.
The Opposite Sex
Women? Well, it was reported that he was dating a lovely girl called Sofie. But there have not been many photos of Fedor and Sofie together posted over the web. Only a few. And to some people, it was not at all clear whether the girl was still the same, or if she had simply changed the color of her hair several times. Neither it is understood how far their relationship has gone, and whether or not we should expect marriage and an extravagant wedding ceremony soon. Most of us just haven’t a clue about these things!
The only thing Fedor had spilled some beans about was the issue of porn – he said he was committed to “no porn” approach which (as he has admitted himself) has helped him to develop a healthy relationship with women. He has been filmed dancing the salsa with the girlfriends of other poker players. And that’s about it!
So we have hardly the slightest inkling of what’s going on here. Maybe it’s just too good to be true, as some people might be inclined to think? Too clean, too nice and too ideal a picture. The fact that there are little to no details on CrownUpGuy’s interest in the opposite sex, or in sex in general, has led some people to believe he might be gay.
Such allegations always dog the footsteps of people who prefer not to say much about their private lives. “This guy must be hiding something” – that is what some people will say in such circumstances. But even if he is in indeed hiding a couple of important things or details about his private life, we still need to note: there has been no indication from Fedor (or even the slightest hint!) about his possible homosexuality, and this surely means that any allegations of such are completely groundless.
Some Background Info to Tell Us More
Some circumstances of his early life could probably shed some more light on his current way of doing things, and personal life preferences. But here, too, we have more questions than answers.
His nationality is German, but he was born in the United States. His surname is very German: in this language, “holz” means “wood.” But his name is Fedor, which is the Russian version of Theodore. Were his parents the adorers of the twisted narrative style of Fyodor Dostoevsky, this famous Russian writer of the nineteenth century? And if so, what is the ethnicity of this family living in the western part of Germany, in Saar, just next to the French border?
We can be sure that the family was very intelligent and paid a lot of attention to his upbringing. Fedor Holz IQ of 155 could not have come out of a bluer sky! But his family, as he himself has said, was not wealthy; and his parents had to work hard. But Fedor grew up in an atmosphere of love and care, and his family relationships were very warm and affectionate. Indeed, as soon as Fedor was able to afford to, he immediately bought his parents a new house! And he is still very close to his three younger sisters as well.
His family was very supportive, encouraging Fedor to grow and develop. And up to now, he doesn’t seem to have lost any of this “growth and development” impulse. After all, he is a Millennial! These people are also called Generation Y. So this is probably a key that can help us understand and explain a lot of his behavior, and of course his private life in general.
Millennial children were born in the 1990s, which were years of relative prosperity and peace, when many technical innovations appeared, spread and began to rapidly change everything in life – especially the Internet, of course. Millennials have all grown up amidst computers, social networks, and the whole “follow your dreams” paradigm. So this can tell us a lot about Fedor Holz!
Some people think that the alignment of the stars at the moment of birth has an influence on your personality. We’ll not argue about this topic here. Let’s just point out that there is actually nothing special in Fedor Holz’s horoscope at all. Born on Sunday – well, this might mean slightly more luck than the average person. Anything else?
His Zodiac sign is a Leo. This might mean that he is given to creating and indeed to ruling and that he tends towards cultivating such personal traits as generosity, humor, warm-heartedness, and cheerfulness. The other side of this sign, however, could be represented by the following characteristics: stubbornness, arrogance, laziness, and a lack of flexibility. All these could easily be attributed to many people of many different star signs, and not only to Leos. And more crucially still: they don’t seem to explain anything about Fedor Holz, really!
However, his ruling planet is the Sun, which presumably has given him an aptitude for boldness, self-expression, and courage. Maybe here we do have a hint then, after all? But only a hint…
Fedor Holz Friends and Circles
Friends and circles would also tell a lot about the man in question. CrownUpGuy has been networking very actively, letting the world know about what he and his friends are doing, especially on Twitter and Instagram. He has got many friends and like-minded people around him. He obviously believes in networking and teamworking, trying to make the best of it in his life. That is why his post-poker initiatives, like Primed Mind and especially No Limit Gaming, involve a lot of team working with his friends.
Fedor Holz home in Vienna seems to be a headquarters for many off-the-felt activities, with a lot of brainstorming and creative communications taking place. Fedor Holz friends are mainly young poker professionals who have also won big money in poker tournaments. They share approaches, visions, and styles. And crack many jokes.
Ultimately, Is There Anything Really Interesting Here?
Many people seem to expect there should be something weird, freaky, or maybe even perverse in the behavior or private life of a young man who has gained such a big fortune in such a short period. But why should we expect that, though? Maybe, on the contrary, everything is very simple! Maybe Fedor Holz is just a modest, well-brought-up young man who is trying to be good, to grow and develop, to express himself, and to act correctly – just by nature, as he was taught by his own family. And if this is so, there is really no reason to expect anything weird from him.
